Calendar Alert: March 23, Sheep! At the Waterford Historical Society Meeting

Find a pencil or pen and mark your calendar for Wed. March 23 at 6:30 p.m., when market gardener and sheep breeder Elizabeth Everts of Too Little Farm, Barnet, comes to the monthly meeting of the Waterford Historical Society at the Davies Memorial Library in Lower Waterford.

Elizabeth will fill us in -- as she did for years at the Fairbanks Museum's Festival of Traditional Crafts -- on sheep raising over the years in our region, and the wool products that result from this.

Above, a sheep design from the February display of hooked rugs at the East Burke Community Library; below, Roberta Smith of Waterford works on her newest rug project, Donna Heath of Waterford practices hooking, and a display of other rugs, including Roberta's Fifteen Mile Falls rug that she designed and hooked for last year's centennial of the last long-log drive on the Connecticut River.
